comeback boys...

Have always felt that the Red Devils have a knack for coming back in the last dying moments. It happens quite often especially on high profile games and boy is it such a freaking thrill to watch!

This morning MU went up against Lyon at Stade de Gerland for their 1st leg Champions League match. It was an intense game as both sides were holding their ground. The boys were controlling most of the match but finding it hard to get past Lyon's defense which was rock solid.

Sadly in the 2nd half Karim Benzema scored a goal with a marvellous piece of solo effort. Boy does this kid have the skills. Hes only 20 years old but what a presence on the field. He definately gave Ferdinand and Vidic a run for their money. Damn I really hope we manage to get him come summer. Would definately be a sweet addition to the team.

After that strike I was getting worried as Lyon was holding fort really well. Coupet had quite a few amazing saves and the defense was all over Rooney and Ronaldo. Fortunately on the 65th minute Fergie made 2 perfect substitutions, Tevez and Nani and what a difference it made. It opened up our offense and created more chances. Before you know it on the 87th minute Tevez slotted one in from a pass by Nani. I was jumping off my couch I tell ya.

Now I can't wait for the 2nd leg in Old Trafford. It will be one hellave game. I wouldn't say the boys have it easy cos Lyon is quite a powerhouse but am sure Fergie will go all out blazing. Kudos on the draw boys! :D

Glory glory Man United!
